-- question was on the geography between pakistan and india. is it critical that the united states try to play a role? that's on really problematic with respect to the indians in terms of defusing tensions between india and pakistan. is that outside 9 postal -- the portfolio of this group? >> it is outside the portfolio of my job. on the other hand, i am in constant touch with the indians. i met with the indians continually. the new ambassador in washington and i have had dinner recently and she and i are in close touch. i go to indio whenever the schedule permits. i stress we're completely transparent. the secretary of state and my close colleague assistant secretary for south asia, central asian affairs bob blake and i were in india recently and the indians are a major factor in the region. they're the dominant power. improveb -- improving u.s.-indian relations ha been a continual goal of the last three u.s.strations, all which i think have been successful in that regard, starting with president clinton's trip in 2000. i will keep the indians fully informed and i have an indian counterpart w
. we will start right on time. the ambassador from india is here. [laughter] [applause] but councilman jack evans is here. [applause] we have representatives from different embassies, as well. let me begin this morning by introducing our special guest, dr. christina romer. as many of you may know, she is the chair of the council of economic advisers. that position was established by the employment act of 1946 where it was decided that the president of united states needed independent, objective economic analysis and advice. from the time that the council was greeted the late 40's, it has had some of the most distinguished economists serving in that position. it has had a long history of very distinguished economists and dr. romer is within the tradition. she is what the best known economists in the country and one of the best known macro economist in the country. she served for 20 years as a member of the faculty of the university of california, berkeley. in that position, she became an expert on the depression, the causes and consequences, and how the u.s. government responded. she ca
compete, against china an india, where vinyl and labor laws are virtually nonexistent, government needs to help, not make things harder. that requires tough choices, and the golden -- in the golden state as well as washington. in los angeles, william lajeunesse, fox news. >> jamie: that is the story in california. what about on a national scale? critics of cap-and-trade are pointing to a new study from the energy department, a federal report, and it says the democrats bill will lead to job losses, especially manufacturing. indiana republican congressman dan burton is joining me now. from indianapolis. congressman, good to see you, thanks for being with us. >> thanks, nice being with you. >> jamie: let me ask you about cap-and-trade and the fact the president insists there will be so many jobs, green jobs, mostly, but this study says in fact there will be no more jobs as a result of the legislation than there would have been anyway. what is your interpretation of the report. >> well, you know, jamie, spain has tried this already, and for every job, new job created that would help the env
april. today, authorities in india confirm that the nation's first h1n1 death has now occurred. here in the u.s., health officials are scrambling to put the brakes on the spread of the virus. steve harrigan is working our miami newsroom tonight and has the latest on the fight on this h1n1 strike. steve? >> shepard, right here in florida, there are 3,000 cases of the h1n1 virus across the state. 30 deaths. but if you do believe pandemic predictions coming out of the state, that number could rise as high as 5 million cases over the next two years. if it does reach that worst case scenario, it could really cripple the public labor force here. >> you could see over a quarter of the population absent from work on any given day of a wave of a pandemic. we don't know if this virus is going to be better or worse than it was in the spring and summer. we know this virus really hasn't gone away yet in this country. >> one more concern a new wave of the virus could hit later during hurricane season. reducing the number of first responders and landing a double whammy on the state's tourism indust
with a grain of salt. after all, senator cornyn last month raised the specter of the threat from india to justify more funding for the f-22. i mean, in fairness, should have justified the threat from canada given the health care debate. take everything he says and put it in a different perspective. >> but this one is particularly juicy, because he defended data mining without people's knowledge during the bush years, but he's now opposed to voluntary sending of white house e-mails, because they might contain e-mail addresses of people who sent out e-mails full of disinformation. just -- i mean, nobody tapped himd on the shoulder and said this looks really bad, senator? >> you know, put aside the fact that the white house made clear no one's name or address is going to be collected, the point here to respond to the viral lies and misperceptions we know are already out there that are being fed by these various grass roots groups, calling them a nice fame, and that, i think, is a smart strategy from white house. we live in a 24/7 media environment. these viral lies can spread very fast. i
india to nepal. >> amazing. >> a million, you are amazing. what a kid. >> here is a look as what is coming at new at 6:00. >> two weeks after injuring her ankle, she is on our way back to work. >> maryland its four billion dollars in stimulus money. so where did the money go, and how many jobs did it create? >> and a historic vote since -- since judge sonia sotomayor to the world's highest court. >> like, local, late breaking. this is tv 11 news at 6:00. >> with this historic vote, the senate has confirmed that judge sotomayor has the intellect, a tavern, history, integrity -- temperament, and presence of mind to ably serve on our nation's highest court. >> that
. it will have a big impact on our economy and our jobs. i call this the full employment act for india and china. what we are going to do if we pass this bill, and by the way, we talk about what the greatest threat to freedom is this is that the health care bill or the capt. trade bill? they are both huge threat, but i think the capt. trade is even more -- i think the cap and the trade is even more dangerous. you'll know that it will haven't -- not have an impact on global climate change because factories and plants and facilities in so many of the things of our manufactured in our industrial sector will move from the united states and will move to china and will move to india and indonesia and it is interesting because i follow these global climate packs and when you go to these things, there is only one thing the rest of the world can agree on. they want the united states to go first. they want us to drop off the close first. that is why the day that the u.s. house of representatives passed that capt. trade bill -- that cap and trade bill, they had parades' in the streets in india. i hope that
in india before it moved southeast -- indy before moveling southeast. and as you can see lined up behind it, another batch of thunderstorms going to come in as we head through the evening hours. already six and 8 inches worth of rain. they have had a lot of water rescues going on. church hill downs is under water and the university of louisville had to be shut down for the day. >>> thanks. the debate is under way in the senate on the first hispanic nominee to the supreme court. most republicans are in opposition but democrats voting in fay very of the historic confirmation. >>> the senate is about to start debate on president obama's first supreme court nominee. despite republican head winds, judge sonia sotomayor is expected to sail through confirmation process. >> she develop add 17 year record as a moderate, mainstream judge. >> reporter: with democrats soldly behind her, it is all but certain. six gop senators will cross party lines to vote for her, far fewer tandem crates and white house hoped for. sotomayor's north sotomayors nomination is causing some to cross the line. >> reporte
. host: hobart, indiana. george on the india line. caller: good morning, gentlemen. glad you took my call. i just don't understand for one thing, mr. pappas. how come there is no flexibility between the parties when i have -- my wife and i have two insurance companies, employer insurance companies and we are consumed almost virtually 20% of our gross income, we are not talking about shared costs. or pharmaceutical or anything catastrophic that would happen to us. we are still going to be placed into bankruptcy. why isn't there some sort of consideration? why can't the two chambers of the house come to some sort of compromise to where we are put in a sunset or triggering mechanism to where we could try this new system of universal healthcare coverage? i don't want to use socialism because it is such a key word, a buzzword for a lot of medicaid and medicare people. they think that they are not part of the socialist medicine group. guest: what george just shared with us, i think, is very important and it reminds me of my parents' own situation. my parents live in massachusetts where they ha
that was coming out of the state department?" and i think about two weeks ago in india i sat down with hillary clinton. that's when she was talking about the north koreans as unruly children and saying things like that. she also issued an apology to the north koreans. she may not call it an apology, but she basically said "we're very sorry this happened." so i think there were a lot of demands coming from the north koreans. i mean, this is a very serious thing here holding these two journalists. everybody is very happy they were released. but there was a lot of back channel going on and i know evan knows a lot more about that than i do. >> rose: i'm going to get to that. but what is the take on what we gained from clinton's conversation with kim jong il? >> well, they met for about an hour and a half and they had that v.i.p. state dinner. so they certainly didn't talk about just the release of these journalists. i mean, that was pretty much a done deal before he went over there. they wouldn't have gone over there if he didn't believe he was coming back with those journalists. i think president

china and india refuse to do the same. i do not agree with a government takeover of health care that would force millions of americans off their current health care, drive health care costs even higher for families, ration care, restrict access to the latest cures and treatments, and put health care decisions in the hands of government bureaucrats rather than doctors and patients. but i do agree that the country is tired of partisanship infecting every debate. the country is tired of actions by a congress becoming a political battle. and so while i do not follow the hypocrisy of many of my democratic colleagues who refuse to -- refused to support justice roberts and alito because they disagreed with their judicial philosophy and now suggest that republicans not do the same. i respect and agree with the legal reasoning of my colleagues who will vote "no." but i will follow the direction of the past and my hope for the future with less polarization, less confrontation, less partisanship. my friends in the party can be assured that i will work as hard as anybody to ensure that the

or india or accepted today, de facto in the nuclear weapons. but the north korean case so different from india or pakistan. this is a smaller -- a small and opaque country, a record of proliferating bad things, whether that's ballistic missiles or nuclear technology. so there's no way that the united states or the world can accept this country as a nike lar weapon state. >> vick to cha, thank you so much for joining us. kiran? oh. >> live out to rob marciano. he's hanging out somewhere on friday. where is he today? he's at the world's largest yardsale. that's right, he's hunting for bargains this morning. there he is. >> what is that? it's some kind of pottery. >> vase or -- >> who knows what he's going to find. >> hello! >> he's going to join us to tell us how they pulled this thing off. >> that looks fantastic. . unlock an outdoor dreamland for your indoor cat. exciting flavor combinations, plus a touch of garden greens make it irresistible. indoor delights. feed the senses. it's the chevy open house. and now, with the cash for clunkers program, a great deal gets even better. let us re
, and india, and brazil, as long as they are there, been the fta problem is marginal. and then you have done doha round, it essential to poor countries and i think american farmers and ranchers have a bad case that their industry is more restricted and limited by foreign trade and any other. but agriculture is 8% of american exports. it is not going to grow even if there is a successful doha round. i think the administration goes to the public and say that we want to push for doha just as it is, the public should say the president is a smart guy and we trust him. given that trade is a dissident and difficult issue within the democratic party, i think that if the administration is going to make a big push for trade and spend capital on it, it has to have a different agenda that will do more for america as an economy and do more for our national security goals as a nation. let me give three points from my paper that i would like to say. one is, we need to look harder at ourselves and our own policies. they are not very good. if you look at the american system, we collect $25 million of tariffs
a contract, making sure the performance is primary and that the elements india work the plan are followed. >> thank you. i appreciate your sticking around until we got to this panel to hear from you and respond to our questions. there are probably colleagues that will want to submit questions for the record. if you could have you responses back within two weeks after you received our questions, we would appreciate that very much. i was reflecting on what we have heard from this panel and what we have heard from our first panel. i always think about what the take the weight should be for us. -- i always think about what they take away should be for us. it is important to clearly outlined the objectives of an agency. they should know that and be able to clearly outlined their objectives and what they need from a contractor. i think mr. assad talked about measuring outcomes and not process. that is a theme that several of you touched upon. i think that one of you talked about cost-benefit analysis, using clear and measurable criteria as an important point. we need clear guidelines from omb.

to milk this segment for all this worse. it is very popular in places like india and the middle east and so forth. the question is, how does it taste? how do you get americans to try this? i'd try it. the health benefits are unbelievable. it is low ryan calories, lower in fat, lower in cholesterol, and higher in protein than chicken, beef, or pork. how do get people to try it? the owner of this ranch approached people around the country and made them an offer they cannot refuse. >> several situations where the chef says we cannot sell that. i said, put it on the menu and if you cannot sell it, we will not charge you for it. >> it is much more lean, much more clean. >> you can make it, you can grill it. i found it quite good. jane: this man who is pushing it, what makes him think that american consumers will buy it? >> sometimes on your menu, you will see his name. his name is synonymous with quality in beef and pork. he pioneered the idea of all natural grass fed beef. now he has turned to goats. one reason is sustainability. actually worked together. he has had interest from costco.
. it has also been passed in the country of india and it failed there, too. what people don't realize is that a lot of the times the plastic surgeon is doing a combined reconstructive and cosmetic procedure and it is difficult to separate one from the other. the most important part of it is the humanity involved in it. a lot of times it is reconstructing people and their scars, for instance, breast cancer, skin cancer and even cleft lip and pallet and i doubt many americans will want to have that taxed. i bet there are a lot of women who have had breast cancer who will be against this. >>> do we know if there will be a distinction between something like an eyebrow lift that is cosmetic? >> the details haven't been worked out. i think it is still in the committee. i know that senator balk said we will have some fun with this one and i think there was an uproar in there because i doubt many people who have had cancer think there is much fun or humor to it. >> seems like so much of what washington is focused on is making sure they go after the high tax bracket folks, people who seem to h
with china and india, that we'll be able to understand that american workers deserve better, and that this is about the beginning of the inclusion of all workers into that economy and all people and communities that deserve to be uplifted, that this will not be an uplifting of yachts, but an uplifting of boats. today is the sound and smell of sweet jus cities. finish pleasure -- justice. >> [inaudible] >> we're doing this together. let me first say that the green the block campaign is not just a campaign, it's a coalition. and so there are already a number of organizations that have signed on to it, so it's not just the hip-hop caucus or green for all doing this alone. how we're going to do this, as i said before, this is not a green jobs moment, it's a clean energy movement, and for us we have to convince our generation that this truly is our lunch counter moment for the 21st century. and we have to go out there and convince them that if we don't make a change now, nine years into the 21st century, there will not be a 22nd century. the time is now. and so with a sense of ur
. there are international negotiations. i do not know how to get china and india to come along. if they will go along with it and we will not lose all manufacturers to china -- you understand china is in number one emitter of pollution, not the united states. they do not want to do it. india is even more adamant about doing it. then we lose their jobs. we need to get china under the umbrella and it takes a 2/3 vote in the senate to get it done. i think there is some protection for our consumers and interesindustry. >> glad to see you again today. i am a veteran. i am very proud to be a veteran. [applause] i belong to the american legion. in order for a person to be called a veteran that has to serve in the military, there are lots of people that are called veterans that cannot belong to the american legion. congress after world war roman one set up the american legion. is the largest veterans' organization in the world. we have a lot of people. in order to belong to the american legion, you had to be in the service during a war. we had a lot of people that after correa, vietnam, world war i, if they

china and india to act first. if america solves our energy problems first, every country on earth will beg for the technologies that we developed. if not, we will be begging for technologies developed elsewhere. america has always prospered by being one step ahead. we mass produced the car and american manufacturing built the middle class. we sparked the i.t. revolution and our high-tech revolution gives us high-paying jobs. today being one step ahead means developing the clean-energy technologies of future before anyone else does. waiting for china to address its emission problems before we address ours is like waiting for an opponent to finish the race before we start to lace up our shoes. china's not waiting for america to act. it's already implemented strong policies to promote clean energy. chinese fuel-efficiency economy standards are higher today than ours will be in 2020. they have already set a 15% renewable energy standard for 2020. and their government recently said they could reach 20%. and in 2009 china became the world's largest clean-energy investor. it plans to spe
